Leo New Moon Vibrations

Moon in Leo displays an emotional need for approval; much of your behavior in many personality attributes associated with this placement emanates from your need to be acknowledged by others for who you are. This will make you pleased being in the limelight, but you often view the vibrations of the Moon as opportunities for self-expression or a means to gain recognition by asserting your authority.

As Leo is a fixed fire sign and is passionate with a fiery nature, its vibrations bring the Moon's watery energy to an instantaneous boil, producing explosive steam; Leo's fire can also energize those functions represented by the Moon. But these functions often manifest themselves more extrovertedly.

Qualities Positive & Negative

The Moon's placement in Leo suggested certain personality characteristics and qualities you may identify with. Leo Moon's qualities are listed below, with their positive vibrations listed first and negative or dysfunctional vibrations listed afterward.


Warm, generous, and giving, emotionally expressive and demonstrative – boisterous, emotionally flamboyant, wear emotions on your sleeve, emotionally insecure, pompous, and overbearing.

Habits and behaviors

Your heart rules your head, and behavior is based on trust and loyalty; this vibration reinforces self-confidence, innate sense of presence and fashion, comfort being in the spotlight, and ability to tap into fire element energy – emotionally impulsive and arbitrary, demanding of loyalty, behavior calculated to impress, overly concerned with appearance, inferiority complex behavior if you do not feel up to the strength and power that is expected of you.

Family/ mother

Your family and mother provided a strong role model; they were creatively stimulating and had a strong emotional bond to family/dad/mother based on warmth and loyalty. Family expectations encourage achievement – a domineering attitude of the mother/family can cause conflict or dependence, and the feeling of always being shown off can prompt shyness, unrealistic expectations for creativity, and success (display of status) can create feelings of inferiority.


You can be creative, draw on images from heritage and culture, and be loyal to your own culture and upbringing – overly romantic about the past and xenophobic.


The transcendental vibrations of Leo Moon symbolize a state in which you possess a generous warmth and freely express goodwill to all. Your dharma is to shine and send forth emotional rays of peace and joy, but you have made peace with your inner self, cleared away the shadow from your subconscious, and removed all dark conditionings. By shining joyfully on your condition and circumstances, you can radiate warmth and enjoyment to those around you. You can bring forth your inner power, which has also given you a regal heart; this rests on your confidence, and faith has become your root nature.

1st House New Moon

The first house is square to the fourth house, ruled by the moon and its natural placement; therefore, some challenges are inherent in a first house placement, but these challenges may result in a weak self-identity. The Moon in the first house also suggests compensating positive elements that play a role in developing your individuality and personality.

The problem in this area with the Moon in the first house has to do with the association of the Moon with behavioral conditioning, influences of the family, especially your mother, and a paradigm characterized by reflectivity, reaction, and dependency. These constructs tend to obstruct the development of a fully individualized self. You may have to work to extract yourself from these influences of the Moon to claim individuality. The positive side of the Moon in the first house brings to the forefront qualities of sensitivity, caring, openness, and being in touch with your emotions. These qualities can be incorporated into who you feel that you are, particularly if you are a male; this can enable you to attend more of a balance between yin and yang energies in your consciousness. Having the Moon in the first house may also predispose you to be open to psychic subconscious or extra-conscious experiences.


"Today is the first day of the rest of my life"

"I am brave"

"I take pride in my appearance"

Take A Look At Your Chart

The New Moon in Leo will affect you personally, and everyone has the influence of the Leo Moon in one or more areas of their chart. Some ideas of what to look for:

  • As the Sun rules Leo, it shines its radiant light to bring warmth in life to whatever it touches. His brilliance can eradicate the darkness of shadows, and the Sun is a universal symbol of consciousness in the power of awareness to overcome ignorance.

  • The Sun rules the fifth house of romance, children, and investment; the fifth house is also the house of gambling and taking risks.

  • Check your chart to see which celestial bodies are in your fifth house this time. Are they easy-flowing, or are they hard aspects of this house from more than one of your personal planets? The easy-flowing aspect will offer support and protection to your feelings of esteem and recognition, but the harsh aspects will augment the challenges presented at this time.

  • What house is your natal Sun located in your astrology chart? If there are harmonious aspects from personal planets to your Sun, then you'll feel more supported now, but you may want to lean into the energy symbolized by those harmonious aspects of your Sun for support. But if there are stressful aspects, take note of this, as challenging aspects can bring you growth, and remember this when you experience stress during the Leo New Moon. It is best to be contemplative and reflect on whatever is happening rather than reactive to whatever surfaces. Let yourself be guided by the best course of action.

  • Though the Moon moves through each sign and house quickly, it can leave a lasting impact on your psyche, but your emotions will be transient. Let your emotions settle before taking any action.

  • The Leo New Moon cycle will bring a fresh opportunity to complete the next New Moon cycle in Virgo on September 14th.

Deeper Insights

The New Moon in Leo is called the Sun Child Moon, and it is a time when we concentrate on creativity in any endeavor, but we also try to retain our childlike confidence of the era before we become conscious of the criticism that others contributed to us. If you are not a performer, and especially if it is because you're too afraid to perform – to get up on stage and try your best tentatively, but if we can neither create nor perform, then the task is to focus on feeling joy and on spreading that joy to others, by whatever means we have.

Moon aspects

23° 16’ Leo New Moon Wednesday, August 16, 5:38 am ET (vc)

Moon Square Uranus

Sun Square Uranus

Mars Trine Uranus

Mercury Inconjunct Chiron Rx

Mercury Stationary Retrograde

Uranus Stationary Retrograde

Moon Square Uranus

This square speaks of a clash between Moon and Uranus that can be very emotional and explosive. A sense of compulsiveness can spawn extraordinary events, or breakdown can result. Maybe a breakdown is needed to break through the conflict these extreme forces represent. Very intense emotions and dynamic energies are at work for change.

Sun Square Uranus

You want to succeed at all costs and meet with the eccentric energies of Uranus, the planet of revolutionary change. Fixed celestial forces are set on accomplishing their way, but change is imminent and irrevocable. The situation will call for restraint and mature deliberation, both of which can be in short supply.

Mars Trine Uranus

The trine between Mars and Uranus can help ameliorate the situation at play, but there is an easy-going exchange between Mars and Uranus that brings about the change indicated at this time.

Mercury Inconjunct Chiron Rx

It may be difficult to find agreements between things that represent something unacceptable, and perhaps an old ego wound becomes activated. Buttons may be pushed, and negative attitudes about what is possible can surface.

Mercury Stationary Retrograde

Mercury will station retrograde exact, on August 23rd, and suspense will be added to what will play out as the tide changes. What seemed like an inevitable slowdown between conflicting forces, aggravating old wounds, may have an opportunity for healing and forward movement. It may take until after Mercury stations direct and return to its conjunction aspect with Chiron that you will see your way through your dilemma.

Uranus Stationary Retrograde

Uranus is already at the degree to which he will be stationary retrograde, but its influence is strongly felt when a planet is stationary. There can be an effect of slowing down in the area of your life where Uranus is currently transiting. The second house matters are where some effects can be felt, as Uranus is in Tauris, which rules this house. The natural placement of Taurus on the zodiac wheel can be affected. Uranus's natural placement is the 11th house, where you might feel some slowing down. Review matters related to those areas of your life. Retrogrades are great times to deepen your intuition and psychic sensitivities.
